Creator God, in ways mysterious and wonderful, you have made humankind and have provided us with a vision of life in community.
Guide us by that vision to share love, hope, healing, and community to those separated from your goodness because of the brokenness of this world.
Use us as you did those loaves and fish to multiply your blessings beyond our imaginings, filling all people with what is needed for life.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Thanks to Rev. Matthew Diegel, of Our Saviour’s-Immanuel Lutheran parish, Thunder Bay, ON, for contributing the CLWR prayer for the ninth Sunday after Pentecost.
